A good time was had by all at the February event which helped to raise £1,000 for Mesothelioma UK, a national specialist resource centre, specifically for the asbestos-related cancer, mesothelioma. 

 The charity is dedicated to providing specialist mesothelioma information, support and education, and to improving care and treatment for all UK mesothelioma patients and their carers.

 The music night was attended by more than 100 people and organised by Glen Wintle and Brian Mead, who expressed thanks to Wayne Boyland, his band members and for Bristol St Andrews Bowling Club who hosted the event.

 Brian Mead opened the evening alongside Trevor Wheeler, (club member) and Gerry Slade (former Mesothelioma UK Specialist Nurse). An auction and raffle took place later in the evening.

 The following organisations are thanked for their contributions: Somerset County Cricket Club, Newport County FC, Jane Austen Centre (Bath), Weston-Super-Mare, Grand Pier, Bristol Ferry Boat and Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm.
